Still at an early stage of my architectural career, learning and absorbing new information everyday.


Graduated from Liverpool John Moores University, UK in June 2010.


Since graduating I have been working with a team of architects at the Maharishi European Research University in Vlodrop, The Netherlands, who under the guidance of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi have re-enlivened the knowledge of Sthapatya Veda Architecture.


"Vastu Vidya or Maharishi Sthapatya Veda® — Vedic Architecture in harmony with Natural Law — details Nature’s own timeless laws of structuring or building which maintain every particle in creation in perfect harmony with everything else. Thus Maharishi Sthapatya Veda is the world’s most ancient and complete system of architecture and planning. It takes into account the influences of sun, moon, stars and planets with reference to north and south poles and the equator. Homes, offices and communities designed and built according to Maharishi Sthapatya Veda therefore connect individual life with Cosmic Life, individual intelligence with Cosmic Intelligence, optimizing both the close and distant positive environmental influences on the individual". (reference


“Because the individual is cosmic, everything about individual life should be in full harmony with Cosmic Life. Maharishi Sthapatya Veda gives dimensions, formulas, and orientations to the buildings that will provide Cosmic Harmony and Support to the individual for his peace, prosperity, and good health – daily life in accord with Natural Law, daily life in the evolutionary direction.” Maharishi Mahesh Yogi


I truly believe that this knowledge is the most wonderful gift the world of architecture has ever received.
